Subject: Shape changer/shifter legends
How many cultures or songs refer to the concept of creatures changing from other species to human or reverse?Are these stories common?Is this the basis for the Great Selchie/Silky?I have heard that the whales are supposed to have come out of the sea,then evolved to go back into the sea. Could these songs be records of very early memories of our species/
